The system SmB6 is known for its unusual resistivity which increases exponentially with decreasing temperature and saturates below 3 K [1]. This has recently been attributed to topological-Kondo-insulator behavior where a topological surface state is created by Sm4f-5d hybridization and is responsible for the transport [2]. The local-density-approximation + Gutzwiller calculations of the (100) surface predict the appearance of three Dirac cones in the surface Brillouin zone [2]. We perform angle-resolved photoemission (ARPES) below 1 K and do not observe the predicted Dirac cones at Γ or X. Moreover, the Fermi surface is made up of steeply dispersing bulk Sm5d states. The Sm2+ 4f band and the hybridization gaps where the surface states are expected [2] are too far (∼20 meV) below the Fermi energy in order to contribute to the transport. These results will be discussed in comparison to other ARPES studies.
